Hospice care transforms lives. It aims to improve a person’s quality of life with care that is personal and tailored to their needs, as well as supporting their friends and family. It is with you through life, through death and through grief.

Hospice UK is the national charity for hospice care. They believe everyone at the end of life, no matter who they are, where they are or why they are ill, should receive the best possible care. Their work aims to champion and support all those providing hospice care across the UK, and equip them with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to deliver the highest quality of care.

Visit the Hospice UK website for more information on hospice care, including a directory of hospice care providers in the UK.
